Interview with Anna Marek

by | May 28, 2024 | Dressage Today Podcast

Welcome to the Dressage Today podcast sponsored byPurina. Aviva and Stephanie talk about the not-so-easy journey horses can travel with their owners, and then Aviva answers the question “When you are halting/making any change in gait on any letter- do you want your leg and/or the center of the horse to cross the letter when the change is being made?”

Together they interview up-and-coming international rider Anna Marek.Marek began showing and training dressage horses in 2001, and she is currently based in Dunellen, Florida, which is close to Ocala. With her Grand Prix horse, Unico, Anna rose to #12 nationwide in the USA during 2016. Just last year she made a statement on the international stage with a team gold and individual bronze with Fire Fly at the Pan American Games in Chile. Last month she finished ninth, the highest finish for a U.S. rider, with a second Grand Prix horse, Fayvel at the FEI Dressage World Cup Final in Saudi Arabia. And most recently, she and Fire Fly were named to the short list for the horse and rider combinations traveling to Europe hopes of making the Olympic team.

Anna loves animals and strives to make the most ethical choices possible. These two qualities along with incredible talent have earned her a reputation as a fierce rising competitor in the dressage arena and as a successful, kind trainer.
